One payment method for differen accounts

Hi all!

 

Please help with this issue: how can I link one payment method (credit card) to different accounts under my MCC. We need to add some new accounts and link them to existing payment method in the easiest way.

 

Many thanks

S.

Hi @Sergey K as far as I know, the only way to have a single payment method across multiple Accounts is to use consolidated billing, see here:

Can I ask why you want to bill to the same method across these Accounts?

Thanks for your reply @Jon_Gritton!

 

We have different clients, and in most cases we use clients' account under our MCC but for one client we use our own money. So if we add one more client to use our own budget we'll need to share payment method. Seems like it's a long and a bit complicated way to add credit card to every new account.  So we'd rather prefer to attach them to one card.

Hi @Sergey K to be honest, I'd always recommend that the client funds their own Accounts.  Remember, if it's your payment details on the Account, it's you who are responsible for the outstanding costs and if there's ever a problem you could be left paying for the clients advertising.

 

I also prefer to use the client's own billing as it's more transparent - the client can see what they've spent on AdWords and what they've been billed.  You would, of course, bill them separately for your own services.
